Star of David badge which belonged to Edwin Bergmann. The origins of the patch are unknown. Edwin escaped Germany in 1939 before badges of this type were made mandatory for Jews in September 1941. The badges were meant to humiliate, separate, and exclude Jews from general society. Edwin, his wife Paula, and youngest son Walter, 3.5 years, left for the United Kingdom in 1939.
